THE MOST TREASURED THING I OWN

My husband and I bought a sailboat 6 years ago that we hope to take across an ocean (at least one!) someday.

ONE PIECE OF ADVICE

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good. In my experience, small steps towards a goal are more lasting and sustainable versus a sudden, sweeping push towards an objective.

I’m an avid knitter and enjoy karaoke, live music, and hosting dinner parties at my home in Edmonds. I am a huge fan of all things in the Pacific NW, and continue to count my move from the east coast to Seattle in 1999 as one of the best decisions of my life.
